exporting/importing sets as not visible

In version 2.16 the not visible setting of sets does not seem to get exported, and all imported sets become visible. Is it possible to get around this or the only way is to make the imported sets not visible in the homework set editor?

The issue with this is that we have a lot of sections using LTI to get student accounts into WeBWorK from Blackboard where all visible sets are automatically assigned to students at automatic account creation time.

It appears so. Looking at the code it looks like set definition files currently do not handle the visible setting at all, so you would have to make them hidden after you import them. If you are copying sets from an old course you can do this directly at the database level and all settings will be preserved, but that approach is not for the faint of heart since there is great potential to mess up your course.

If you think that this is a valuable feature then you can submit a report at https://github.com/openwebwork/webwork2/issues in the hope that it will be included for the next version.
